Czech Republic teenage pop sensation Pink Angels are ready to wow the UK with their mesmerising talents. Tereza (15), Angee (16), Natalie (18), and Nikola (17), are already household names in their native but are now preparing to unleash their catchy pop hooks on to the British public on the next step on their quest for world domination. Despite their young age, the group always entertain their audiences with their energetic and vibrant live performances, fuelled by impressive dance routines full of confidence and charisma. Together, the band hold European and World dance championship titles and the ability to play the piano, the cello, and the guitar.
The hugely exciting band (who have already collectively racked up over 60,000 Instagram followers) have performed on British shores before, having supported the likes of Little Mix, Union J, and Rita Ora amongst others. Now, they are back as their own entity – currently performing on a two-month long tour of the UK, which will culminate at Liverpool’s Fusion Festival in September, an event that is headlined by Jason Derulo and Olly Murs.
The girls aren’t just looking to win over the Brits, either. Following the success of their Czech reality television series, they’ll be documenting their attempt at cracking the U.S. charts in the upcoming series ‘Pinks Across America’, which is just like the ‘Thelma and Louise’ American road trip of a lifetime – but without the ending!
They’re touring the UK all over the summer at Butlins, followed by a performance at Fusion Festival in September.
SHVPES can now reveal that their debut album, ‘PAIN. JOY. ECSTASY. DESPAIR.’, will be released on October 14th via Search and Destroy / Spinefarm Records.
‘PAIN. JOY. ECSTACY. DESPAIR.’ has been produced by Carl Bown & Jim Pinder (While She Sleeps, Trivium, Bullet For My Valentine), and features both ‘God Warrior’ and ‘False Teeth’; these first two tracks to be revealed from SHVPES’ forthcoming album have now been joined by a third, ‘Two Minutes of Hate’ – released as an official single with supporting music video. Watch it HERE,
SHVPES frontman, Griffin, says: “As a concept, this album is about finding the beauty in whatever situation you’re in. Your ability to feel pain/ to feel despair is ultimately what allows you to embrace the feeling of joy or ecstasy. It’s like yin & yang. ‘Pain. Joy. Ecstacy. Despair.’ gave me a platform to expel 24 years’ worth of frustration and turn it into something positive; something I can be proud of and something, I hope, the listener can find solace in.
From our eclectic musical influences to the incredibly personal, vulnerable, yet empowering lyrical content, we’ve managed to create something that is perfectly in balance with our own musical tastes. To be able to put out our most honest work to date, at this point, is a dream come true. There really is something for everyone on this record and we can’t wait for you all to hear it!”
On the live front, SHVPES will be appearing as sole support to ASKING ALEXANDRIA at two very special SOLD OUT UK shows this summer.
Shows guesting with Asking Alexandria are as follows:-
15 – Southampton, Engine Rooms
16 – London, Koko

"It turns out all that hype might have been appropriate…one moment it’s a snarling synth-rock banger a la Radiohead’s “Myxomatosis,” the next it’s an emotional computer ballad like Nicki Minaj’s “Truffle Butter” beat bawling its eyes out” - STEREOGUM
“Phantogram perfectly capture those feelings of desperation, hunger, and boredom, wrapping it all into a track that packs an unexpected punch” - MTV
"Hypnotic" - ROLLING STONE
NY indie-electronica duo Phantogram – comprised of Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter - have premiered the video to new single “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” on Fader. The track, which has already had 2.5 million Spotify streams, impacts on September 16 and is the first single to be taken from Phantogram’s new album ‘Three’, also out September 16 on new UK label Fiction Records.
The video was shot in Bombay Beach on the shores of The Salton Sea in California, and is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Grant Singer, who has previously directed promos for Sky Ferreira, Skrillex, Ariel Pink, Little Dragon, Sleigh Bells, Foxygen and The Weeknd.
“You Don’t Get Me High Anymore is about the loneliness in superficial relationships and that feeling of not being able to find happiness in places that were once so easy to come across,” says Phantogram’s Carter. “The desolation in Bombay Beach represents that feeling really well. The area was once a promising vacation spot before the droughts and now it’s a ghost town. We were excited that Grant picked that spot, he understood the aesthetic of the song right off the bat and ran with it.”
Since the release of their 2014 US break-though album Voices, Phantogram have trekked across the globe playing live shows and festival dates, contributed features to everyone from A-Trak to Miley Cyrus and been sampled by Kanye West, The Game and A$AP Rocky, as well as releasing their debut BIG GRAMS LP with good friend and musical partner in crime, Big Boi of Outkast. The New York bred duo made writing stops at home and in Atlanta before picking back up in Los Angeles to record Three. Carter and Barthel shared duties on production and vocals, melding elements of rock, pop, hip-hop and electronic. The resulting sound leans darker and more psychedelic yet with some of the brightest and most introspective pop melodies they’ve delivered to date, truly making them genre-defying artists for the 21st century.
Phantogram will be touring across the United States and Canada in the autumn before reaching Europe in November. The UK leg includes dates in Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow and a show at London’s Heaven on Wednesday 16th November.

Rock supergroup Orbs have released the visuals for their single, "Giving Tree Hanging Me." Watch the video HERE via New Noise Magazine. The original track comes from the band's new album Past Life Regression, released on July 15th. Fans can purchase the album HERE or stream it in full HERE via Team Rock. The band will be touring the east coast in support of the new project, marking their first live performances in over five years.
"It was really important to us to find a way to bring some of the reincarnation story from the album to life," bassist Dan Briggs told New Noise Magazine. The remorseful, piano-driven "Giving Tree Hanging Me" is one of the more emotional songs on the band's new album. Briggs explained that, "The tree man plays an important visual in the album and we found a way to bring it to life with mixed media and great drawings." The drawings, created by Thomas Sara, fuel the creative vision developed by Briggs and director Richie Valdez (All Shall Perish, The Red Chord). "Valdez is a true creative warrior, I couldn't be happier with the result."
"I wanted to convey the guilt we carry when we affect someone with our selfish actions," vocalist Adam Fisher told Substream Magazine on the original track, "The main character can't forgive himself and though he keeps travelling he can't seem to move on." On the composition of the track, bassist Dan Briggs added that, "the big blowout at the end of the song does feel like a funeral dirge, with the character accepting his place in the forest as his final resting place."
Orbs is the creative brainchild of Dan Briggs (of Between The Buried and Me), Ashley Ellyllon and Adam Fisher (of Fear Before The March of Flames). The trio first joined forces in 2010, releasing their debut project, Asleep Next To Science, with Equal Vision Records. In the six years since their inception, ORBS gained a steady fan base and released a two-track EP, These People Are Animals mixed by Ken Andrews whose previous collaborations include Failure and Paramore. Past Life Regression, self-produced by Dan Briggs, was released on his own imprint called Hogweed & Fugue Record, via Equal Vision Records. With this project, ORBS re-enters the music scene ready to perform for their fans for the first time in five years.
